Be VERY careful about what brand you use. I use the brand 'Sweet Leaf' every time I'm at my parents' home (it's what my mom uses) with no problems and just great, natural no calorie sweetness. I assumed every brand of 'Stevia' was the same and bought a box of PurVia packets and have been using them for about a week (about 3 packets a day in a big jug of homemade iced green tea that I normally just...

I couldn't provide ratings, so I just marked one star. I just received a sample of Crystal Light Pure Fitness. I never use Crystal Light because it has artificial sweeteners, of which I am highly allergic. I was contemplating this new sample because it didn't have Splenda, Aspartame, Ascefulme K, etc. I have reactions like shortness of breath, itching, swelling, joint soreness after ingesting t...

Stevia is starting to show up in many foods as a sweetener. I have now seen 3 people have severe psychotic episodes within 2 minutes of ingesting the sweetener. In two of cases the stevia was listed as a 'natural flavor' and I had to call the company to confirm what was in the drink or candy bar.

Notice that most bad reviews don't mention the brand of stevia that caused issues for them. I go for the Organic Sweetleaf with inulin and, unlike some other brands, it works just fine.

Stevia has weened me off cane sugar and off a general desire for sweeteners. At first I replaced cane sugar with stevia, but soon lost the desire for sweetness and use stevia now in a more limited way.

I bought 10 boxes of Compliments Stevia at the 99 Cent Store about two to three years ago. After one box I feel like my digestive system was put in disarray I had pains. As I heard now that other people have also. I have thrown the 10 boxes away they are called compliments stevia they are distributed in Carmel Indiana. I threw them away so that other people wouldn't have the same experience. Perhaps they should be investigated and withdrawn from the market.

I drank sodas sweetened with stevia because I really liked the taste and figured it was probably better for me than sugar. I noticed heart palpitations that started about a year ago and decided it was probably allergy medication. I stopped that but the heart palpitations kept happening. I finally connected it to stevia-sweetened gingerale, so switched to lemon-lime stevia sweetened soda. Same problem. I just had a cup of stevia-sweetened root beer, and soon after the palpitations started. Super disappointed, I love drinking that stuff.
